Lenovo showed a prototype of a flexible ThinkPad X1 notebook

While most manufacturers are preparing their folding smartphones, Lenovo went ahead and introduced

prototype laptop with a flexible screen.

What is known

The novelty is called ThinkPad X1 and itsshowed up at the annual Accelerate 2019 event in Orlando, USA. Like conventional laptops, the device folds in half, thanks to a special hinge. Instead of a separate screen and keyboard, the entire internal surface is occupied by a flexible display. Its folded diagonal is 13.3-inches. The device works on the Windows operating system. Other information about the ThinkPad X1 manufacturer did not disclose.

When to expect

Lenovo has been working on the product for the past few years, but is not going to release it yet. At least until 2020. It seems that the manufacturer does not want to repeat the fate of the Samsung Galaxy Fold.
